**Students at the University of Idaho taking online courses are usually charged resident tuition provided they only register for online courses (this includes 500, 599, and 600 research credits). However, please check with the Office of the Registrar if you have any questions.
Please note, registering for a campus course will lead to you being charged non-resident tuition for that and all future courses. A web fee ($35) per credit will be charged for all online courses. Additional course fees may apply. Distance education courses offered via Engineering Outreach have an additional production fee.
